The Bosch ABS10 Unit - The Future of ABS

The leading manufacturer of ABS equipment for motorcycles, Bosch, has unveiled its smallest, lightest and most effective unit yet as it suggests that mandating ABS is coming closer to reality. The new Bosch ABS10 motorcycle unit is up to 30 percent lighter and 45 percent smaller than the current Bosch ABS9 unit.

Bosch board of management member Dirk Hoheisel says it is a cost-effective solution for the price-sensitive small motorcycle segment as legislators around the world move closer to making ABS mandatory. More than one in three new motorcycles manufactured in Europe is now fitted with ABS and Japan, Europe, India, Brazil and Taiwan have already mandated ABS on designated motorcycles from as early as 2016. Mandatory ABS for motorcycles is also on the political agenda in Australia and America. Also more and more voices in the ASEAN countries talk about making ABS mandatory.
'ABS can prevent one-quarter of all motorcycle accidents resulting in casualties', says Dirk Hoheisel, quoting from GIDAS, the German In-Depth Accident Study. 'We welcome the decisions around the world to make ABS standard. This will greatly reduce the number of motorcycle accidents.'

Bosch presented its new generation of motorcycle antilock braking system at the EICMA motorcycle show and they will be available this year to suit small-capacity motorcycles and scooters in emerging markets such as India, Thailand and Indonesia. 'We are bringing our ABS technology to all vehicle classes and markets,' Dirk says.

From 2017, new motorcycles and scooters with more than 125cc displacement throughout the European Union must be fitted with an antilock braking system (ABS). In Japan, ABS will be mandatory from October 2018 fro new-type approvals for motorcycles with more than 125cc. In emerging markets such as Brazil, India and Taiwan, too, laws mandating ABS in the future have already been passed.Tag: Bosch ABS ABS10 ABS9 EICMA Future Technology Motorcycles Scooters Mandatory ASEAN Dirk Hoheisel Antilock-system
